First 150 Words:
My father dropped the last bag with a huff and looked over at the long winding sidewalk towards the main dormitory on campus. "Are you sure you don't want us to come in with you?"
I shook my head.
My mother arched an eyebrow. She looked at the measly two bags I had packed. "We could come back with more of your stuff, you know. It's not a far drive."
I shook my head. I didn't want anything else. Everything that was left at home was there for a reason. The old letter jacket from Ched, the worn out mini-skirt that had been to one too many parties... everything was a reminder of who I used to be. This was a fresh start, or it was supposed to be. I didn't know how much of a fresh start I could get at a state school.
